I got an e-mail tonight from Jennifer Block, the Ironman competitor from Puyallup.

Block dedicated her race to Ty Quandt, an Edgewood boy who has Niemann-Pick Type C. The disease slowly takes down its victims by deteriorating the nervous system. Most victims die from the disease before they turn 20.

Block, 46, Finished 30th in her age group at Ironman.

Block said the race effort exceeded the $10,000 fundraising goal by $400.

Here’s a video of Block’s Ironman experience. She uses the video when she gives presentation about Niemann-Pick Disease.
